KyotoLefty (6322) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 27, 2013
Bottle from Yespr. Drank in Avenue Hotel in CPH. Aromatic nose of smoke, wood, chocolate, soy sauce, touch of fruit. Dark brown with a lacy head, bubbles. Sweet chocolate first in the mouth, with cola, fruit, maybe orange, smoke, woody barrel. This has held upnamazingly well. Still fresh and spritzy. Smoke isnprobably less than before, but great wood flavors, chocolate, fruits, honey. Not very heavy, silky and peppery carbonation. Finish has bitter hops, roast malt, smoke, and wood. Excellent and very interesting.

Ughsmash (7124) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Nip bottle, BB 12/31/12. Poured rich reddish-amber with a short, but easily-resuscitated beige head. The aroma picked up a hefty dose of campfire smoked very well integrated with darker fruits and honey.. some peppery notes around the nose.. vinous character right on the back.. loved it! The favor found tangy oak and smoke on the tip of the tongue, with honey, biscuity notes, and licorice following.. smoked malt again played well with the other components, and it gave a find grand finale (paired with a bit of barrel).. sweet and smoky on the finish, leaving excellent belly warmth. Heavier-bodied with low carbonation on the palate.. felt good. Loved it!

250mL thanks to CaptainCougar as a very generous gift for my wedding slash going away present (in addition to other wale beers). Pours a clearish, murky brown. Fizzing out tan head. No retention or lace. Low carbonation. Bottle did pop with some carbonation. Nose brings out toffee, red apple, moderate sausage, applewood smoke, thicker honey, then moves to some heavy black olive, tapenade, green olive and pimento, mild red apple oxidation. At certain points something like sharp brandy is most prominent. Taste is tangy, very papery, moderate honey sweetness. Palate is a bit syrupy, moderate ash. Overall interesting, but over the hill. GT2: 3.0

My refuse-to-rate-beer-so-help-me-god fiance says it was pretty good, lots of tobacco in finish. Aroma has some smoke but also a lot of sugar. Finishes sweet, a bit cloying. Stickier mouthfeel. biggirlpanties: 3.2

yngwie (13350) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 29, 2012
Bottle, 25cl. A small, dense, off-white head tops a clear, copper colored body. Alcohol and lots of peat in the aroma. A bit one dimensional maybe, but very nice. The flavor too is on the peated, alcoholic side, with some lemony sourness and a fine hoppyness added. Full-bodied, a bit low on carbonation. Hoppy finish with peat. Even though its too much on the peated side, I normally dont appreciate that very much, its a fine beer I wouldnt mind having again. 110930

Pours a clear and reddish brown beer with a weak offwhite head. The aroma is malt, caramel, alcohol, wood, dried fruit, smoke, whisky and weak notes of peat. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is sweetness with some smoke and alcoholwarmth. Overall a good and complex beer.

Cloudy brown beer with a decent creamy looking tan head. Softish palate. Sweet and strong with well balanced smoky malt. Aniseed alcohol is present but smooth and well integrated. Finishes with more sweet smoke. A full on smoke beer - but would you expect anything else from Mikkeller? Very nice.
